Schoolhouse Rocks the 4th of July

Now this is nostalgic. I used to watch “Schoolhouse Rock” every Saturday morning. This is where a whole generation learned about manifest destiny (“Elbow Room”), English grammar (“Conjunction Junction”), how a bill becomes a law (“I’m just a bill”), and much more. So I thought what could be more fun this 4th of July than to post Schoolhouse Rock’s videos on the Declaration of Independence and the American Revolution.

These videos are suh-weet! Enjoy!

“Fireworks”

“No More Kings”

    My kids were watching the DVDs this week and
    I’ve been “re”-learning some history and math rules that I hope will stick this time around!
    I’m thrilled that they can grow up with this too!

    Happy 4th!
    lovin’ livin’ free!

    I checked these out from the local library a year or so ago and enjoyed them with my kiddos.

    Some folks in our church gathered to celebrate the 4th of July last week (and to watch the dads present fulfill all of their pyromaniac dreams…). After stuffing ourselves with hot dogs, chips and everything our wives won’t let us eat at home, we stopped to thank God for the blessing of living in the United States. Before we prayed, I quoted from memory the preamble of the US Constitution, which I learned watching these as a kid. Somebody tell my dad that I was actually leaning something all those Saturday mornings…
